Checking in went well although the amount of paperwork would make an Indian Bureaucrat blush. The rooms are large and well furnished. The furnishings show signs of wear and tear. Housekeeping was efficient and at a satisfactory standard for this class of hotel. The weakness in the establishment is the restaurant/breakfast room. At an evening meal all of the desserts... More

The room was clean and the staff were helpful. The hotel is located in town and within walking distance of restaurants. The midday lunches from the restaurant were good, but if you are searching for an elaborate breakfast, this is not the place for you. The breakfast is basic. I did find a lot of fruits were served.

Me and my colleagues on business trip booked two rooms a month back. We checked in on 8th April 2015 and we were told that the rooms are ready for us. after we settled our bags, I went to take a shower. I turned the shower, after making some air noise the shower started with black dirty sewage water on... More

City View is located in the town so it is easy to get to everywhere. The staff is friendly but the hotel needs major renovation. The rooms and bathrooms need updating. The restaurant's food is edible but it's not great. I would recommend it if you're staying for one night and you need to be in St John, otherwise find... More

Having stayed in a few hotels in Antigua near St. John's, I would recommend that if you want accessibility to downtown, stay in a nice hotel and get a taxi. I stayed here for one night thankfully. As many people have said there are many good positives, but some bad negatives: Positives are - the staff are pretty helpful and... More

I stayed there for 4 days for a workshop. The location is perfect for being in proximity to town, and the room was spacious although badly in need of updating; some of the tiles in the bathroom actually fell on my foot during a shower. Ordering breakfast was also an ordeal because each morning it took more than 45 minutes... More

Stayed here for a Business meeting. The staff were very friendly and the location is good for those who like to shop and walk downtown. However it is not near any beach, and the neighborhood that it is in is not the cleanest, and to be honest - was a bit shady to walk at night. The room were very... More

The staff is very flexible, owned and managed by locals so they are able to make adjustments to please their guest without have to worry about accountability to the "cooperate" leaders. Being a small hotel staff remember every guest and interact on a personal level most times remembering first names and even greeting you when they see you about town... More

My husband and I were there for 5 days on a business trip. It is a good location if you in the city for business. It needs a lot of renovations. With some much needed TLC, I think that it has the potential to attract more people who visit for business.

We choose this hotel, because we wanted to be close to the ferry to Barbuda, which leaves early in the morning from the port of St. John´s. The transfer from the airport was arranged by the hotel and went very smooth. Check in was easy and friendly. We had a huge, clean room with a strong A/C and a balcony,... More
